Trinity Church opts for mixed-use tower in Financial District

New proposals to eliminate residential tower portion of property
  • Pelli Clarke Pelli will continue to lead the design, only this time it'll be without the apartments and will feature three additional floors of public spaces.
  • Clarke referred to the design as the “right size for smaller startup companies” and the entire development as “a highly-efficient office tower."
  • The 98,000 square-foot community center is set to include a café, formal meeting room, fitness center and classrooms. Offices will begin on the 10th floor and continue through the top floor of the tower.
  • Aside from the church and parish building, Trinity’s holdings in Manhattan stem from a grant in 1705 from Britain’s Queen Anne, which spanned 215 acres of what was originally farmland.

In a recent redesign, Trinity Wall Street abandoned plans for a condo development to replace the historic parish office building at 68-74 Trinity Place and are instead pursuing a commercial tower.
